Ag Insights

Brett Crosby, president and co-owner of Wyoming-based Custom Ag Solutions , spoke at Coker College in Hartsville, SC, on Thursday afternoon. He talked to an audience of students, local farmers, and members of the community interested in agribusiness. He shared interesting numbers about farmers, farming and feeding the world:

< 1% of the US population is farmers

This < 1% is feeding 1/5th of the world’s population

20% of all grain in the world comes from the US

16 – 17% of all meat comes from the US

Each year there are fewer farmers growing more food for less.

Mr. Crosby had a lot of interesting information. He does what he loves – he’s a cowboy and an economist. You can follow his insights on twitter under the handle @mbacowboy.
